different rain-makers right now. trying to track them with a lot of question marks as to the path and the result. this is a live picture right now, time square, 82 degrees under mostly cloudy skies, but you can see from the picture, sun is making it through. high humidity, very uncomfortable out there. we have got some very significant weather changes to talk about. soaking thunderstorms it overnight. the probability of flooding in areas specifically up to the north of us. and we're tracking joaquin closely because that may provide uses with our next big rain-maker as we head into and through the weekend. 82 degrees, 82 already in the city. remember, our normal high is 70. i think we're going to go all the way up to 84 today. temperatures around the area, upper 70s to low 80s, pretty much wherever you look. and even as you head to the north and west with where it's. 3 in monticello, out on the island, 76, and bridgewater
storm tracker right now. this could bring us scattered shower activity in the city, but more likely on the island over the next few hours. it's what's to the west that's the big concern. widely diffused, but this system is working in our direction, and packs a good deal of moisture with it. let's use future tracker to try and nail down the time frame of what we get, where, and when. so, started this afternoon at about 2:00. we head on through the rush hour tonight and we see the rain begin to move on in, heaviest concentrations to the north of the city. then as we get to about 11:00 tonight, look at those reds and yellows and oranges, that's the heaviest concentration of rain, watch it on interstate 80, up through 287 in westchester, and then, as we head through the overnight hours, it really begins to pummel the area. we call this sleeper rain, why? it happens while we're sleeping. tonight, you may not be so lucky because we're expecting thundershower activity as well.
most of it pushes out of the way by tomorrow morning, let's say, 8:00, 9:00, but doesn't mean we're rain-free. and in the meantime, all those roadways, like the bronx river, the saw mill, that typically gets sitting water, could be problematic, we head to tomorrow morning. rain totals, heaviest stuff to the north. look at this, three to five inches expected to the north of us. two to three as you head up to duchess county, one to two right here in the city. this is where our watches are posted right now. we may get more of those as the afternoon progresses, janet will update on you, janice will update you on that. joaquin, the next rain-maker, where and when, that remains the question mark, but we are getting heavy rain into the weekend. rest of the day today, 81 degrees at 4:00 p.m., hit and miss showers, heavy stuff tonight into tonight, the heavy rain rolls through, down to 70 degrees, and tomorrow and into the next seven days, we watch this. look that the, a 23-24-degree drop behind that system as we
head into the end of the week, and that's when our next rain-maker rolls in our direction. we will continue to update you through the day into tonight and tomorrow as well, folks. >> we need the rain i guess. >> we do, but there's tough stuff. >> thank you. by the way, if you see a frantic scene with ambulances and the sound of gunfire on roosevelt island later this afternoon, don't worry, there's a tv production company that's starting filming on trump plaza road. less than an hour from now. around 1:00, no word though on what show that simulated emergency will actually turn up on. we'll keep you posted. >> just for tv. no real emergency.
